Not many of my friends wanted to see The Butler. Apparently watching a movie about slavery and the Civil Rights Movement is too much for some people. I wanted to watch it because I wanted to see a part of history I never knew about. I've heard about the Freedom Riders and slavery, but I never read or saw stories about the domestic work of African Americans in the past. For those of you that hate watching movies that tell the brutal stories about slavery and Civil Rights Movement, I guarantee you that The Butler is not too harsh.
Everyone in touch with pop news knows that Korean singer/rapper Psy's "Gangnam Style" has made history for being the most viewed video on YouTube ever. Now there seems to be a new video coming to knock Psy's hit out of place.

I will always prefer G-Dragon's slow songs over his up-tempo dance music. So I'm shocked and happy that G-Dragon teamed up with Sky Ferreira to release the song "Black". They are two of my favorite people. Right now the song is on repeat. Sky does a wonderful job in the chorus of the song, she is so freaking amazing!
School is back in session for most of us, and now along with getting books and studying for tests, thoughts of paying are peeking around the corner. I've already shared a few out of the box ways to pay for tuition, so in this post, I'll share a few more common ways to to tackle the bill.
Federal Loans and Grants
One of the most common ways to pay for school is applying for federal grants and loans through the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) online or mail in a copy. Applying for the FAFSA will let you know what federal loans and grants you are eligible for such as the Pell Grant, Subsized and Unsubsized loans and more.
Based on your FAFSA information, you may be eligible for additional grants. You can contact your school to see which ones you qualify for.
These are loans provided by a private lender. These usually have a higher interest rate and may have a different pay back time than federal loans. Many banks, as well as loan companies, offer these options to students. Talk to a parent or guardian first if your interested in one of these loans.
